Health tourism and physical literacy : a qualitative exploration of elderly visitors' experiences after rehabilitation at Slovenian health resorts
Katja Kokot, Maja Turnšek, 2022, original scientific article

Abstract: The promotion of physical literacy is an opportunity to multiply significant health benefits in an ageing society. In Slovenia, health resorts are one of the most common prime areas for health enhancement, offering numerous services for individuals to improve their health and forming an important pillar of the social tourism and healthcare sector. The aim of this research is to explore the role of medical rehabilitation at Slovene health resorts in the processes of increasing the physical literacy of their patients. Twenty-one semi-structured interviews were conducted with previous guests of Slovene health resorts who have undertaken medical rehabilitation. The analysis indicates that the most common approach is providing lectures about physical activity followed by group or individual physical regimes organised for patients with similar health concerns. These actions target two dimensions of physical literacy: the competence and the knowledge/understanding dimension. However, the eventual omission of prescribed physical activity following the rehabilitation is an issue concerning the motivation dimension of physical literacy, which should thus be addressed more in the future. The findings contribute to understanding the role of medical rehabilitation at Slovene health resorts by applying the physical literacy model for older adults. The study provides valuable insights regarding the long-term benefits of rehabilitation at the health resorts on individuals’ level of physical literacy. The results are helpful for both the tourism and medical sectors.

Overview of inmates' treatment in Slovenia
Danijela Frangež, Jerneja Šifrer, 2010, review article

Abstract: Purpose: The purpose of this article is to present an overview of inmates’ treatment in Slovenia. After the introduction a brief discussion of terms is presented. The overview then takes a historical focus followed by a more detailed description of current treatment in Slovenia. Design/Methodology/Approach: The paper is based on a literature review and on a conducted interview. Findings: Slovenian penal institutions are dominated by compromise between treatment and punishment policy. The treatment, however, can be implemented only to the degree that is permitted by the security measurements in the penal institution. Therefore, Slovenia was and still is confronted with a question: what kind of punishment and inmates’ treatment practice would be most effective? Research limitations/implications: The lack of literature on inmates’ treatment in Slovenia published in recent years was the main issue the authors have to deal with. Therefore the interview with treatment personnel was conducted. Practical implications: Taking into account a chronological overview of inmates’ treatment in Slovenia, the paper reflects the inmates’ treatment in Slovenian society today. Originality/Value: This paper attempts to provide a broad overview of Slovenian treatment of inmates. It may be important to non-academic policy makers, students as to academics interested in gaining some knowledge about Slovenia’s past and present prison treatment policies.

Prisoner rehabilitation in Serbia
Želimir Kešetović, Biljana Simeunović-Patić, 2010, review article

Abstract: Purpose: The paper gives a brief overview of the history and past developments of prison rehabilitation in the Republic of Serbia, as well as a more detailed description of present situation in the domain of the execution of institutional penal sanctions, in both normative and practical aspects. Design/Methodology/Approach: For the purpose of the analysis, legislative documents were taken into account, as well as official data and reports of the Prison Administration of the Ministry of Justice and NGOs reports. Findings: The new treatment concept is based on the latest scientific achievements on crime and experiences of modern and developed penal systems Europe-wide. It is primarily focused on better classification of convicted persons by the level of risk, individual characteristics, needs and ability to adopt positive interventions through the penal system. Particularly important is that external control of work of penal institutions is provided, through the institution of Protector of Citizens. However there is still need of further developments in the domains of prison rehabilitation/treatments, and particularly of aftercare and post-penal assistance, in order to reach the substantial improvements in ex-prisoners’ social inclusion, reduction re-offending rates and crime prevention. Research limitations/implications: More reliable conclusions on overall effects of prison rehabilitations could be derived only on the basis of particularly tailored comprehensive longitudinal research. Rather new legislation and ongoing reform of the concept of prison administration are objective external research limitations. Practical implications: This paper emphasises the importance of after care and post-penal assistance as a problem that should be addressed in comprehensive manner by Ministry of Justice, together with other relevant ministries and agencies in Serbian government. Originality/Value: This paper is among few attempts of Serbian prisoner rehabilitation evaluation.

Prisoner rehabilitation in Romania
Ioan Durnescu, Petronel Mirel Dobrica, Catalin Bejan, 2010, review article

Abstract: Purpose: This paper examines the construction and the reconstruction of the concept of prisoner rehabilitation in the prison context since 1874 until today taking into account the way this concept was reflected in the law or the subsequent official documents. Some figures and trends are introduced into the discussion to help a better understanding of the concept. Rehabilitation is analyzed using a three pillars model: human capital, social capital and legitimate opportunities. Design/Methodology/Approach: The analysis mainly takes into account the primary and the secondary legislation although in order to illustrate different points statistical figures and research reports are also used. The article starts with the legislation adopted in 1874 and examines all prison legislation up to 2006, focusing particularly on prisoner rehabilitation. Findings: The article concludes that although a lot of progress took place in understanding rehabilitation from all three perspectives (human capital, social capital and legitimate opportunities) there is still room for improvement in developing legitimate opportunities for ex-prisoners. Research limitations: Although the difference between “law in theory” and “law in action” is acknowledged this articles looks mainly to the law texts. This might create a different picture of reality but nevertheless reflects the general perspective used in approaching prisoner rehabilitation. Somehow surprisingly, the subject of prisoner rehabilitation was central in almost all prison legislation although it was not always in line with the prevailing ideology. Practical implications: >As stated above, good and bad examples of behaviour transformation may be observed in the past legislation. The main policy implication is that there was a time when the issue of resettlement or aftercare was considered a penal policy issue. The current legislation is completely silent in this respect. Originality/Value: Prisoner rehabilitation is scrutinized from the historical perspective using a relatively new theoretical framework.

Prisoners' rehabilitation in Hungary : struggling ideals, lacking resources
David Vig, 2010, review article

Abstract: Purpose: This paper examines the development of ideal prisoner rehabilitation in a historical and legal point of view. The concept of rehabilitation is not only examined in legal texts and official documents. Furthermore the activity of the prison administration is also examined and the paper presents practical examples. Design/Methodology/Approach: The analysis mainly takes into account the primary and the secondary legislation although in order to illustrate different points, statistical figures, research reports and interviews with members of staff and experts are also used. The article starts with legislation from the 19th century and examines all prison legislation up to the present, focusing particularly on prisoner rehabilitation. The analysis covers the examination of the struggling ideals in prison policy. Findings: The article concludes that after 20 years of democracy there is no steady and predictable prison policy. The principles of the reforms are not clear, the struggling ideals and lack of resources prevent the prison system from fundamental reforms. Although a lot of progress has been made, there is still space for improvement in the field of rehabilitation. Research limitations: The prison system is measured mostly by quantitative methods and the data is sometimes not available publicly. This ‘restricted access’ to information and the discrepancy between the ‘law in practice’ and the ‘written law’ on which a great part of the examination is based may lead to a slightly different picture of reality. This was eased with ‘soft’ research methods as consultations with experts. Practical implications: The main policy recommendations are that there is a need for a steady and predictable prison policy but not necessarily by more funding, rather the concentration of resources for convicted offenders whose liberty has to be deprived necessarily. This could be reached by a decrease in the prison population and the use of alternative sanctions. Originality/Value: Prisoner rehabilitation is scrutinized from the historical perspective and the related information is compared to the written law.

Procedural justice and fairness in cases adjudicated and attitudes to recidivism among Nigerian prisoners
Gabriel Agboola Adetula, 2017, original scientific article

Abstract: Purpose: The study critically examines procedural justice and fairness in court processes, the Nigerian prison system, term of imprisonment, and prisoners’ perception of treatment effects on their attitude to recidivism behaviour practice in the Nigerian socio-cultural context. The aim is to measure the relationship between cases adjudicated, imprisonment term, length of sentence, crime committed, court fairness and recidivism attitude. Design/Methods/Approach: The study adopts an ex-post facto design approach for the survey. Three hundred prisoners from the Olokuta and Owo prisons in Ondo State, Nigeria were randomly selected as participants. Questionnaires and oral interview questions were adapted to elicit data. Pearson product moment correlation statistical analysis was used to process the data. Findings: The results show that the six measurement variables correlated at different levels of significance and directions with the object being measured – recidivism attitude. Research Limitations / Implications: Access to prison and soliciting the data from the required number of prisoners was difficult due to restrictions. Nigerian courts are classified as ‘sacred’, and criminal records are untouchable, unreadable and inaccessible. These hindrances posed limits on research efforts to obtain sufficient data for the analysis. Practical Implications: The correlation results of the analysis not only show the directions of the variables’ usefulness to each other, but also provide an emerging information resource that may serve as a primary data source or be of use in future investigations. Originality/Value: Given the nature of psychometric properties, a new idea concerning the measurement of attitudes has emerged – the scale may be used to measure the treatment of a prisoner’s attitude to recidivism. It might hold the potential to be used as a method to help scholars and experts better define the concept of recidivism.

Penitentiary institution in Bar
Mirko Mugoša, 2015, master's thesis

Abstract: This Master's Dissertation offers an idea for a new penitentiary institution in Bar. The idea is based on an analysis of the current situation in Montenegro, regarding the capacity and conditions in existing prisons. The results of these analyses pinpointed the location of the new facility, as well as the conceptual approach in design. The concept relies on new trends in designing of prison facilities that focus on rehabilitation rather than emphasizing punishment. Architects play an important role in creating such a space, where good design helps in improving society and serves them. A Penitentiary institution offers a unique space: specially designed prison cells, common areas for sports, education, religion and work, courtyards and spaces to interact with employees. Such an environment is used to achieve objectives such as rehabilitation and peaceful coexistence, promote human rights and enrich society, as well as to prepare prisoners for life after prison.

Kaltrina Jashanica, 2015, master's thesis

Abstract: In this Master’s Thesis we attempt to explain how delicate is the period of study; and how it can be influenced, as well as how determining can be solid composition/buildings for the personal insights of artists. The aim is to bring a new aura where art, students, artists, community, surrounding interlace in one art hub. The new Academy of Arts lies on the degraded area in the south of Technical Faculties. This thesis addresses two major issues within the main objective: Firstly, to offer enough and pleasant space/environment to Art students. While the second approach reconsiders the existing architecture which is currently downgraded. In the first steps of work, the existing blocks were analysed carefully in order to preserve them as much as possible, and involve them in a new solution. Further, new structure is implanted respectfully into the old lines while the content brings completely different atmosphere compared to conventional way of organizing and teaching. Thus, the new design embraces both, the old and the new structures with a rich program and diverse spaces and atmospheres.

Prisoner rehabilitation in Croatia
Irma Kovčo Vukadin, Vladimira Žakman-Ban, Anita Jandrić Nišević, 2010, review article

Abstract: Namen prispevka: This paper gives an analitical overview of historical development and contemporary picture of the concept of prisoner rehabilitation in Croatia within current crime and punishment perspective. Metodologija: For the purpose of the analysis, legislative documents were taken into account, as well as data on crime and punishment (Croatian Bureau of Statistics) and Ministry of justice and Ombudsman reports. Ugotovitve: The authors have found that Croatia has a modern legal frame for meeting all internationally recognized prerequisits for prisoners’ rehabilitation and reintegration but has to solve overcrowding as the main source of many problems in organizing adequate prison life for prisoners and also for the staff. Adequate staffing and incorporation of evaluation plans in special rehabilitation programs were also pointed out as important tasks. Omejitve raziskave: Examination of history of prisoner rehabilitation is sometimes problematic while the laws were rehabilitation oriented (on declarative level) but those who experienced that „law in action“ rarely agreed with that declaration. This may also be the result of different meaning of the term „rehabilitation“ (specially for certain types of prisoners) in different political climates. Praktična uporabnost: This paper showed that concept of rehabilitation may vary at definition level. Also, it prooved that some current elements of the execution of prison sentence (as a part of rehabilitation) have a long history. Izvirnost/pomembnost prispevka: This paper provides a first attempt (to authors knowledge) of Croatian prisoner rehabilitation evaluation.
